Sunday ferries, a correction

I think it is fair to say that my suggestion that Sunday ferries into Lewis will commence on the 23rd of March was unmitigated nonsense.

My sources now advise that they had been completely misled, mixing two different events and coming to a third conclusion.

So when is it happening?

My guess is the start of the Winter timetable in 2008.

So Calmac yet again don't provide a service that the large majority of their customers want, and that is also provided on most other ferry services in Western Europe. Disgusting. It's about time the whole thing went out to a once-and-for-all tender for a SEVEN DAY ferry service.

If it is true that CalMac is delaying the introduction of 7 day services until October I agree with 11.42 - we need an operator who will respond to customer needs and market opportunities. This smacks either of political interference or lack of entrerprise by CalMac or both. The Fisher report last year showed the potential of summer sunday sailings - kind of obvious - yet it seems (IF this is true) that CalMac will not take the risk until winter when there is less traffic but the comfort blanket of RET subsidy. Questions have to be asked but who among our local and national politicians is going to ask them? I despair for our islands.

Can someone tell me (or post a link to) all the does and donts of the Sabbath.

Can I mow my lawn on a Sunday, hang out the washing, etc

Is there an offical list of do's and dont's?

You can mow my lawn on Sunday if you wish.

no 'official list' as far as the bible is concerned but the pharisees sorry traditionalists have their own private rules - I am quite sure most of them couldn't even put them down in words, most of the time, that is what makes them such a pernicious set of rules!

oh well. If no one can list the does and don'ts then I shall do what i want!

There is a very helpful booklet available at the Stornoway tourist office and other outlets on this very subject and it's fully of helpful and handy hints for the innocent visitor to Lewis and of course Harris. From memory I cannot remember if mowing the lawn is on the list of approved activities but I'm pretty sure its not as it's a pretty short list.
